Not for nothing but I was thinking along the same lines. One report I saw claimed that there were 8000 hotel-nights reserved for the game. This report claims 19300 hotel rooms were reserved.

Ten percent of all married people now have a partner of a different race or ethnicity, he finds; likewise, more than 10 percent of babies born in the United States have mixed parentage. Fully 80 percent of those polyglot children have one non-Hispanic white parent. Yet official Census data categorize those children as minorities even when they identify as white.
